Banana & Buckwheat Pancakes

These pancakes are so quick and easy to make, my 11 yr old can make his own in no time!

Buckwheat flour is a great alternative if you’re gluten free or if you just want something different. The flour soaks up a lot of liquid and binds really well, so there is no need to use a flax egg. They also cook much quicker than when you use regular flour.ย I don’t add any sweetener to the batter, but feel free to add any sweetener that works for you.

I have added grated apple to the mixture and that worked really well. You could also make them savoury, by adding peas and sweet corn.

I have frozen these pancakes and used them for lunchbox fillers. They are also great for little hands.

This recipe makes about 11 medium pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any other plant milk)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Method:

  • ย Pre heat a non stick frying pan to a medium heat
  • Mash the banana in a large bowl
  • Add the vanilla essence and mix
  • Add the flour, baking powder and milk. Mix well
  • Add more milk if you want a thinner consistency
  • Spoon the batter into the hot pan, ensuring there is space between each one
  • Cook for around 2 minutes or until bubbles start forming
  • Flip and cook the other side until brown
  • Continue until you’ve used all the batter

Serve with pure maple syrup, coconut yoghurt,ย  fruit or all 3!
